In addition to many domains like education, health and military, where the cloud computing finds itself a broad usage, the library sector nowadays also benefits the cloud computing service model primarily in order to reduce the cost of information technologies and provide flexibilty, continuity and scalabilty in information services. The main purpose that lies behind the libraries demand for cloud computing is the intention of reducing higher costs of IT requirements that cannot be met with relatively low budgets. The purpose of the research is to assess the readiness of University Libraries to be able to restruct their IT Services on Cloud Environment and define the problems in this context. In addition, a conceptual service model development was aimed under the framework of Cloud Technologies. This study is the first of its kind that tries to score the position of the university libraries on the subject of cloud computing. In the research, the hypothesis “Although it seems there is a requirement to reconstruct Library IT services on Cloud Environment, there are various proplems on different levels stem from internal and external factors“ was verified. As a result of our study, a conceptual model called “National University Libraries Cloud” was formulized and some propositions were developed regarding the operation and preservation of the model. Also, a policy and strategy document was introduced towards the usage of cloud computing service model in national universtiy libraries. The results obtained from this research will be a valuable source to guide the university libraries to migrate to cloud computing environment as well as filling the gap in the literature in respective area.
